DeathNote and Cowboy Bepop. I found both series really boring.

One Piece, Naruto, and Bleach are... not overrated. They're fun, they're shonen, and more importantly, they're above-average shonen. They really are popular for a reason. They're like popcorn. And I fucking love popcorn. Of the three, the only one I like is Bleach, and yet I know it's almost certainly the worst of the three.

People who read One Piece are, I believe, some sort of advanced evolution of human at a higher level than the rest of us.

It seems everyone is joining on the bandwagon of "Sword Art Online sucks and is stupid" I've noticed.

On the one hand it's good because SAO is god-awful. On the other hand they're bandwagoning and have no idea why it's bad. Anyway, considering the amount of hate it gets, I wouldn't call it overrated anymore.

Asuna isn't a tsundere.

Asuna is a tsundere. That by itself doesn't make her a good or bad character but, by definition, she is a tsundere.

People like Vampire Knight? I mean obviously some people do, but I was under the impression it was pretty well hated.


FantasiaSoul wrote:Code Geass: It was another disappointment. While it had great characters, (C.C., Lelouch, Suzaku, and Kallen are pretty awesome) i didn't like the story and the direction it went.




Okay, enough talk. If I were to pick two anime I most consider to be overrated, they would be...

Serial Experiments Lain
Ghost in the Shell


I don't think I've ever seen a bad word said about either of them.

Slightly, but not enough to classify fully as one. She's not at Asuka's (Evangelion) or Taiga's (Toradora) level though, by a long shot (not like that matters though). By I see what you're saying, by definition and whatnot. Anyway, I have seen criticism of Lain and GiTS - you just have to look for it. Another example is Cowboy Bebop.

Like others have said, this is pretty much a bashing thread.

Hatred can be produced in a number of ways, however in this case it requires two ingredients. First, the item in question must be popular. Second, it must be bad. SAO fulfills both these qualifications admirably. It's not like this is a new thing. You might remember that one book series that garnered significant disapproval for similar reasons...



That said, people will move on eventually. We'll forgive, but we won't forget. In some dark corner of our souls, episode 24 will be on repeat for eternity.

Any female character that has a "B-B-B-BAKAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!" moment automatically rates an 11/10 on the tsunderometer.

And before you ask, yes, I have a tsunderometer. I made it by attaching a magic eight ball to a microwave. WITH SCIENCE.

Sword Art Online.

I enjoyed the series, though. However, I've seen many people exaggerate the series, saying what it's not. It's a good anime, but not great as there are quite a few flaws in it, I think.

can I put the swimming anime CM as the newest most overrated anime, even if it's just a 30 second CM, and will never be an anime?

Didn't read all the comments, but I hope no one dared to mention "Code Geass" or "Kekkaishi" as Overrated. Anyway my list goes like this:
    Fairy Tail
    Toriko
    Kampfer
    Wolf's Rain
    (I personally liked this one)

I don't see the need to repeat the ones that people before me already said.

Isnt it a bit exaggerating to compare twilight to SAO? lol

Anyways people are entitled to their own opinion. I for one thought SAO wasnt half bad.

You just proved my point. The hatred you (and I) have for Twilight is disproportionate to the book's actual quality. It's not a good book by any stretch of the imagination, but it's not the worst book of all time. It wasn't even the worst book of the year. It wasn't even the worst book put out by that particular publishing company that year. I can't actually tell you what the worse books are, but statistically speaking, they must exist.

In the same way, SAO wasn't the worst anime of 2012. I don't think I watched any worse anime - except maybe K (although I haven't finished it yet) and possibly Code:Breaker - but you know all those shows your eyes automatically skip over when you're looking for something new to watch? Those were worse. What sets SAO apart, and what sets Twilight apart, is that they were popular.

And now you've learned a valuable lesson about human psychology.

I think anyone who says SAO in this thread didn't read the light novels, and is only saying it's bad because of all the cuts that were made to fit the first two arcs into an anime. I'm fully aware that this thread says "Most overrated ANIME", but I've seen that SAO has gotten a cult following of hate on this forum, and I'm actually positive that none of the bandwagon "I HATE SAO" people never even tried the light novels. Until you do, your opinion is entirely irrelevant, because you don't know the real story of SAO, at all.

On topic, I found Madoka Magica to be overrated. It wasn't bad, but definitely not the masterpiece it'd been made out to be.

Sword Art Online, i dropped it at episode 17 after they started introducing creepy butterflies and cousin love, but even before that the series was nothing but poorly written wish fulfillment for gamers that only served as enjoyable schlock due to it's fantastic art and animation quality and Yuki Kajiura soundtrack

Wrong. I dont have any hatred for twilight. What i said was simply a joke based on the stereotype that twilight sucks. I havent even watched it so how could i hate it?
